    You won't regret it. Or maybe you will, what do I know? In any case, if you need me to haul something for you I'm just on the other side of the mountain.

    Anyone know who will be leading the single track rides? That is who I'll be looking for.

    Aqua Tite inc, Tulsa, OK (guttering specialist) is sponsoring this years grand door prize.


    If you are in attendance at Saturday nights door prize drawing you might be the new owner of a Newner Loop.

    That's Right! you could own a version of the working man's luggage system.


    The special SLAP edition Newer Loop is smaller then the previous version and we camouflaged it just in case you do not like the design it should be invisible if you are riding really fast in the woods.


    Some various bikes modeling the NL:

    KTM 950SE

    We'll be sure to clear all the banana peels off the trail first.

    Not solid on my schedule yet, but it's possible that I could be free Thursday or Friday.
    If there is a single track ride planned for Thursday, that's what I'll shoot for.
    I could lead a ST ride about 10 miles from Byrd's, but I am not familiar with the Byrd's area single track.

    Here's a taste of some of the tight stuff over the mountain. This is very recent, you can see that conditions are primo right now:

    I did get to tag onto one of Boogn1sh's rides a couple of years ago when it was real wet and was riding my WR250R with the stock Trailwings. He took us right into a creek bed and the track crossed back and forth across the creek. See "youtube SLAP 2010 with "Riders on the Storm" playing in the background. Next time I ride in his group, I will have a 200 2-stroke like he does!:huh:lol3

    took one for the team.
    I snuck off at 2:00 today and rode up to Oark just to make sure the hamburgers and pies are still tasty. two thumbs up ! Then drove around on Forest Service roads and up Beach Grove road. Got in a 100 miles and you can't see my license plate due to mud. A truly good day in the Ozarks.
    The gnats were out in force in some locations, two thumbs down.
    The trails were tacky with little to no dust. The Mulberry is still running high enough for water sports today. Felt bad for some of them kids, coundn't afford hardly any clothes.
    Will bring out a trailer full of wood probably Thursday night. I will be in town next weekend after all. If I promise not to drink any beer or eat any food can I listen to some of the camp fire stories ?

    He's a trailer queen these days, plus we're lucky to get him out of the house.
